#33: 16 year old HS Jr Elizabeth Langshur uses her anxiety as an opportunity to connect authentically with friends and educate, inspire and empower others like her
After dealing with health issues from the age of 10, Elizabeth shares how she recovered from anxiety, depression and bullying in middle school, and how she is using her experience to inform and educate others. Along the way, she is opening hearts and inspiring and empowering students like herself to be open honest and real. She speaks to how she now considers her middle school “bully” a gift to her passion and purpose to spread the word, reveal not conceal, and normalize mental illness as a means to authentic connection with others. Elizabeth is planning to study psychology in college and would like to focus on therapy on children.
